Mutterings continued.

Leece's water tank has been overflowing - yay!

The kind of headline sub-editors dream of: "Virgin: Sydney a dud route". It refers to a story about Virgin airlines giving Sydney a miss for its flights to Fiji and Vanuatu.


"Star wants chest hair insurance
From correspondents in London

IT was one of the more unusual requests British insurance underwriter Jonathan Thomas had received: Could he please draw up a policy to protect an unnamed star against the loss of his chest hair?" It ain't Orlando Bloom - apparently he's being fitted for a chest wig for his next movie. "The policy is only valid for "accidental bodily injury" and - as is the way with insurance - has a lengthy list of exclusions.

If the star was to be left with a bald torso through war, revolution, radioactive contamination or terrorism - sorry, no payout.

Their lifestyle would also have to be circumscribed, ruling out activities as varied as fire-breathing and - a measure that sums up the sheer caution inherent to insurance brokers - pregnancy and child-birth. "

Chap on the iinet.general ng reports that tickets for the upcoming Eagles concert are priced as follows:

Off to get my hair cut tonight. It needs it.
